    If you had paid for MobileME you were given the extra storage as compensation for your paid subscription. All subscriptions have expired at this point.

    Take the $99 you would have spent renewing MobileMe and use $40 to up your storage space instead.

    So we got screwed from Apple? I'd think I'd have stuck with Dropbox!

    I only use 18% of my 5 GB. There is hardly any need for more IMO

    Very true. But that's just you. I use 25% of my 12.3 GB of Dropbox space. My friend use 50% of his 15GB of Dropbox space. We all use different amount so what you use does not equal to what everyone else uses.

    I think iCloud works a whole lot different to Dropbox. The only thing counted in iCloud are really documents, and contacts, I have 82 contacts and 63 documents in there. All music, videos, and photos aren't included in the 5gb

    It should be noted that iCloud storage is free and unlimited. It's just the 3rd party app docs that is limited to 5GB by default, which I haven't run into or even used yet to any significant degree. In any case, you can buy more storage if it gets to that. Or get an external drive, which is probably smarter/safer, anyways.

    They already done it haven't they, I got an email saying I was close to my 5GB limit.

    If thats the case, I will just change to Gmail .
